yes,
there are other BRANDs to select a DV-RS-MMC from.

You can try finding NEC,MAGU,PANASONIC,KINGSTONE(this card is very slow),Olympus etc..

NOTE: Be sure that you buy the Dual Voltage Multimedia Card for your N70.



Cheers,
KATH.

I had bought my N70 in India and bought a 1GB DV MMC at the Frankfurt Airport from a company called Transcend. It works like a charm.. I believe you can buy this card in Europe.. coudln't find any here in the US.

The original 64MB card that came with my N70 had a rating of 1.8/3.3V Dual Voltage and so I remembered to buy the same rating Dual Voltage card when I was looking for a 1GB card..

Hope this helps..

yes !!!! may be said as SPECIAL !

The built in card reader in the n70 works on the 1.8 volts.
So, you need a memory card that supports 1.8 volts.

It is a matter of sorrow that there is NO card in the market that ONLY supports 1.8 volts. So, you have to buy a card that support both 1.8 and 3.0 volts and this kind of cards are available in the market.

Buy a card of the above type and they may be called "MMC Mobile" or "DV-RS-MMC(dual voltage reduced size MMC)".

Warped_reality,
How long have you been using your Transcend MMC in your N70 and what have been your experience so far. I have read in this forum and others about Nokia phone users having nasty experiences with a particular brand of MMC i.e Kingston and i just want to avoid that.
I wish you well.

Hi

I've been using this card since August of 2006 and it's done really well for me. No issues whatsoever, photos or any file transfer is clean and good.

In fact funny thing is, when I turn on camera mode(the one on the back), it shows 59:59 as remaining capacity for recording video and I think some 3000 for taking photos hehe..

Hope this helps..

Hi warped_reality,

One more question, do i have to format it before putting it to use?
I wish you well.

Yes I formatted the card before using it. Although I don't know if I had to, it being a brand new card and everything and I wouldn't lose any data.

Hope this helps..

Re: Which memory card brand is compatible with Nokia N70?

Hi Warped_reality, i could not get the Transcend MMC to buy here in my country and i'm thinking of contacting a friend in UK to help me buy it and send it to me.
Whenever i am able to get it and see how it works, i will definetely post here so as to assist other people who may be having the same problem.
Thanks for your concern.
I wish you well.
